Jimi Heselden, owner of Segway, dies after riding his Segway off a cliff
The accident was witnesses by a man walking his dog. It was theorized by the coroner that Heselden was being polite, allowing the other man to continue along the narrow walkway. Heselden reversed his Segway to allow room, lost control of the Segway, and plummeted from the 40-80 foot cliff.
